The saddest thing to me about this whole thing is from the reports on CO and costume availability in the same system.

If they'd sent some of the CO costume design people over to STO and, as someone said in the stickied flame festival, had some other less chaste and more fanservicey stuff available that one could put on all their BOs (including off duty stuff, which BOs should be allowed), the demand for the MU uniforms wouldn't even be there. It's all about the navel baring and seeing the chests. :p

Yes I must agree with you there. I think at least some of the people claiming how 'iconic' the uniforms are might be exaggarating just a tad. Especially when you consider how many episodes those uniforms appeared in (one). At least Liberated Borg appeared in multiple seasons of Voyager.

There was nearly no fuss at all about the Mirror Universe uniforms until the exact day the female outfits were finally put in.

Yeah they did but the one thing about the rifle was it was given to one brick and mortar store unlike the others in the US.


Oh, and from the Engineering report:

Pack 7 - June 15

* KLG Bridge Pack - Raptor
* FED Costume Pack - DS9
* FED Costume Pack - MU
* FED Costume Pack - TNG
* FED COstume Pack - TOS

* FED Borg Bridge Officer
* KLG Borg Bridge Officer
* KLG Pet - "Targ"
* Emote - Bloodwine

dstahl put crossing fingers by the only one not already in the game too so that may or may not make it in "pack 7"

Re: Personae

Yup... :p It's all about the fanservice. I mean... for people who have CO, surely with the look of hero comics lately they have some string bikini tops or such for that, heck, just retexture them or something and stick them in, watch the fuss go away when they can stick them on all the female BOffs.

I'll probably take a lot of crud for this, but I'd rather see some other playable races be cross-faction allowed for a fee. I used to play an Orion girl on a multiplayer text based trek RPG, one who was Starfleet proud and slept with a concussion rifle during some of the Borg incidents there. I'd love to be able to bring her back.

Now it seems like maybe Wal-Mart had the best retail item of them all after all once the rifle hits. The skill points to start and can C-store anything else you wanted. I take back all the laughing I did to the people who bought the game from Wal-Mart now.
I am also curious why some didn't make it. Maybe it was part of their agreement with said retailer that they wouldn't offer their exclusives until either a certain date or until they had sold a certain # of copies? Just speculating if that were the case, Target may still have too many units on the shelves.

I was at Gamestop this weekend and they still had a copy of their regular edition with the Connie and the CE with Connie and 3 guest passes. It was still $50, but I was tempted to grab the one with the passes...

If the TR-116 is that cool, I'm tempted to sneak out to Target and see if I can snatch a copy there on sale with the code. :p

I'm rather surprised Federation Orions haven't been offered on the C-store yet. Its a popular request. I faked one with the 'alien' but not quite the same because the traits weren't available. But if they do, they should also sell Klingon side Humans or Vulcans. Fair is fair.

I wouldn't mind if they did. I'm guessing they'd be far less popular than UFP Orions, but... yeah, I wouldn't object to them being there. And I'd have Selena Meadows back in her Defiant within minutes of it being offered.

I could fake one as well, but without the traits, yeah. They should open more traits to alien builds, imo.

Depending on how much truly game altering stuff gets put in the c-store, I could mention another thing to sell for good cost as well, that doesn't violate exclusive or anything, but I don't because it's too close to pay for play, and would probably overrun the game. But given the chance to do so, I woulda paid good C-store cred to get more traits for my alien char.

IF I were at Cryptic, I'd start an NPC Vulcan group that doesn't play nice with the Federation. A "Sons of Sybok". And I could see them both being something that paves the way for Klingon Vulcans as well as advancing the Galactic Barrier plots that Cryptic has indicated an interest in. We know there are barriers at the center of the galaxy and the rim. We know people become godlike at the rim and that the center contained a false god. It could make for an interesting way to follow up on STV (something you'd likely never see addressed elsewhere aside from Peter David novels and the Shatnerverse).

Of course, in place of the "Mindmeld" ability, they'd have, "Take Pain" or something as a seduce type ability.
